Located in the busy Barrio Alto district, not far from Rato underground station, this small but modern bar caters for beer-conscious clientele. No crap on tap policy rules here, the 18 taps featuring mostly Portuguese micros (e.g. Dois Corvos) and a few foreign ones, too. 50+ bottles include well-known but good Belgians and Americans. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Fair prices for the quality and the location, although I imagine that few Portuguese can afford to come here regularly. Would gladly be back again.
Quite a bit disappointed with the tap selection on my visit actually. Quality beers of course, but quite ordinary if you regularly visit beer bars of this type - and definitely would have like to see some more Portuguese on tap. Bottle selection was quite extensive, although one could question the wisdom of storing them in such warm and humid conditions (as on my visit on a quite hot July afternoon), with only a small fridge provided for the freshest ones. Do make a visit if you're in the area, but if you choose to spend half a day on a 'beer-tour' out of the city centre, I'd rather go to the taprooms of Dois Corvois and Musa on the other end of Lisboa.
There is a reason why he was the first and is still on top. Passionate, good staff, good selection and a warm local feel. Huge cheap flights of lots of imports and a great bottle selection. A very nice stop.
If my Lisbon guidebook is correct this was the first specialist beer bar to open in the city. It's in the 'cool' part of town I guess, close to hip cocktail bars, restaurants and coffee shops with names like Copenhagen Coffee Lab. It's an unassuming beer bar not obvious from the outside, and easy to walk past. Expect a good tap list, with half foreign options, half Portuguese beers - identifiable with a red asterisk. Nice range of bottles both shelf and fridge, very well chosen, lots of Belgian, UK, US. I chose a flight of 5 for 9.5 euros, though the price board was amended to 10 euros while I was waiting for these to be poured and brought. Staff seemed quite relaxed and in no hurry to pour the beers after ordering and sitting for around ten minutes. Still, some very interesting strong beers and nice barrel-aged rarities made the wait worth it. I think there's some light snacks and boards available too. Nice place.
Small beer bars located slightly off the town centre. Staff is very knowledgeable and great to chat with. Good selection of beer to go as well as great selection of beers on tap. Prices are fair for selection and quality. Definitely the place to stop when in Lisbon.
If what you’re looking for are local brews and a few exceptional beers from around Europe, this is a good place to visit. Smallish, in a charming part of town. Small, but impressive collection of bottles. Visited with Kent in 2018.
